EK Water Blocks EK-FC7950[EN] Full Cover GPU Water Block Review (Page 4)

EK-FC7950[EN] Full Cover GPU Water Block


The block is also protected with a cellophane sleeve to keeps any scratches or oxidation from getting to the block.


On the back, where the flap folds over, there is a tamper-proof sticker assuring you nobody has touched anything to the black after assembly and any possible testing.


I went with this combination because what is the point of a nickel plated block if you can't see it through the clear acrylic top? You can see cut-outs for caps and chokes, the EK logo over the GPU core cooling fins and the stainless steel plate that allows water to flow from the GPU and memory portion of this block over to the PWM section of it.


On the side of the block you will find a pair of tamper-proof stickers showing that the top has not been removed from either section of this block. I will be tampering with these soon.


This is where you can see this is essentially two separate blocks with the steel plate covering the pass-through of the acrylic to each block. The left side will be cooling the PWM and the right side handles the memory and GPU heat loads.


Once I pulled the nine screws and removed the stainless steel plate you can see how the coolant is forced out of the GPU and memory section, through the acrylic and over to the PWM block. The combination of screws and washers work well to keep leaks at bay through this transition.


I also removed the acrylic top off of the GPU section to show you an up close shot of the grooves cut into the copper block that will be doing most of the heat removal on this side of the block. These nineteen slits and the large pass-through holes allow for the high flow nature of the EK-FC7950[EN].
